Over the last several weeks, I have had a sense of excitement and expectation for what God is doing even in the midst of this unique season. I have been challenged to not look at this season with natural eyes, but with a spiritual perspective like never before.
What we see going on in the natural can always lead us astray. What we hear with our natural ears can cause us to feel fearful or experience doubt. But this is not the season to feel discouraged or dismayed, my friends! Brighter days are ahead!
In this season, fix your gaze on the Lord with fierce focus and a sharp, prophetic ear. What God is about to do in the earth is something we have never seen before and God has called each of us to be a part of it. Look with your spiritual eyes and you will see that God is working to turn every situation and circumstance around for our good and to advance His kingdom!
The Lord spoke to me recently and said, "Lean into what I am doing right now. There are brighter days ahead." I want to challenge you to hang onto every prophetic word and promise God has given you during this season. Whatever God started in your life, He is still going to bring it to completion.
These may seem like dark days, but there are brighter days ahead! In the right season, God is going to bring to pass all of the promises and prophetic words He has given you. Tests and trials will come to try to lead you astray and distract you, but don't let anything distract you in this season. Your promise is coming and there is a new day dawning on the horizon for the body of Christ. Just keep going and do not give up!
In this hour, pay attention to the prophetic voices and lean in to hear the voice of the Lord. God is releasing strategy and hope in the midst of everything else that is going on in the earth. Take this time to fine-tune your giftings and amp up your prayer life, because something powerful is on the other side of this season. You may feel weary and feel like giving up, but don't quit now! Be encouraged, keep moving forward and know there is so much waiting for you and for the body of Christ on the other side of this season.
It is so important, especially in this season, to listen and follow the leadership and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Lock in with God in prayer and listen closely for His voice. Surround yourself with wise people and be wise! There are powerful days ahead and in order to be prepared, we must prepare now! Brighter days are ahead and I believe we are about to see one of the greatest moves of God in America and in the nations of the earth.
In the next 90 days, God is going to move in the hearts and lives of so many. Brighter days are ahead and we must prepare ourselves for what is coming!
